I understand that, Quigs. But this collection comprises many hours of TV spots; there *might* be a Mr. Clean in there. I haven't watched everything yet.

Perhaps it actually does:
""1001 Classic Commercials" (Mill Creek, 1950s-70s, three discs, $14.98). Just the other day, someone sent me one of those baby-boomer e-mail quizzes and it was nothing but TV-commercial slogans. Sadly, I knew every one of them without hesitating. You know: "You'll wonder where the yellow went (fill in the rest)."

And all of them are here, along with many more, in such categories as food, appliances, health and beauty, beverages and cigarettes (further broken down by brand names). Some of the prints are scratchy, soft or color-faded but many are quite sharp, parading across the screen such old friends as Speedy (Alka-Seltzer), the Jolley Green Giant, the Marlboro Man and Mr. Clean."
